    Yeah, that unnecessary outburst of disgust must have wasted a good few minutes of your day. Isn't it sad how those minutes just never grow back again?

    Cheers for that Google Video plug-in...

    Skype is a nuisance, certainly.

    But can anyone suggest an open-source client that allows you, as a Linux user, to communicate with Windows users, with both voice and video?

    Empathy and Pidgin...

    Again, kraftman, rhetoric! Linux is obviously the best solution for us, but commercial and global community feeling is definitely opposed to it.

    Wow, that post suffers from a serious case of TL: DR.

    I hope you understand the concept of rhetorical questions, my friend. I didn't mean to ask what the point of Linux as a desktop was (speaking...

    WINE? Now that is hilarious. I'd hardly say Wine works 'best' for anyone. It's a compromise, borne out of open-source adventurism, one that works well for most people, but certainly not 'best'.
  9. Well, I was more referring to driver blobs, but...

    Well, I was more referring to driver blobs, but alright. Yikes, that's a lot of commercial proprietary software. All within a Linux environment? Can't see the advantage of a GNU userland with a Linux...

    I still reckon Linux should be treated as a philosophy. I'm sure you don't have time for wishy-washy sentiment, but desktop Linux loses much of its purpose when compared to proprietary solutions on...

    Then use their software. What's the point of using Linux, a clearly inferior solution to proprietary ones such as Windows 7 and Mac OS X?

    Linux is considered a cheap, superior solution where...

    You know, VMWare's solutions are vastly superior to the open-source Virtualbox. I wouldn't touch their Workstation with a bargepole, though.

    Advocating proprietary solutions on Linux rather misses...

    I think Nvidia are roughly comparable to China.

    They benefit us enormously in so many ways, yet are famous for rigourous protecting and safeguarding their secrets.

    Alright, they're protecting...

    Nvidia. Providing the most reliable, most feature-rich 3d-accelerated desktop on Linux. And they will never, ever bend their knee to open-source.

    3d acceleration truly is the sorest deficiency in...

    Great. How about a benchmark? Wine looks like it has really strengthened these past few years. I think we'd all like to see just how much.

    I suggest you get a Nvidia system with the proprietary...

    Warsow, perhaps?

    Sure, the media's restricted, but all the code is GPL'd. When it comes to software, generally that's what counts. Firefox's media is restricted too, you...

    The only real merititious point of OpenSolaris is its superb filesystem, ZFS - at least, when you consider the figures gained from this benchmark. Good work, by the way.

    It's a damn shame that the...
